A rational number is a number that can be written as a fraction with an integer for its numerator and a nonzero integer for its denominator. To write a rational number as a decimal, divide the numerator by the denominator.

**Additional Example 1: Writing Fractions as Decimals**

Write each fraction as a decimal. Round to the nearest hundredth, if necessary. 1 4 9 5 5 3 A. B. C. 1 .8 1 .6 6 6 0.2 5 1.00 4 5 9.0 3 5.000 – 8 – 3 – 5 20 40 20 – 20 – 40 – 18 20 – 18 1 4 9 5 = 1.8 5 3 = 0.25 20 ≈ 1.67 – 18 2

Check It Out: Example 1 Write each fraction as a decimal. Round to the nearest hundredth, if necessary. 6 5 7 4 5 6 A. B. C. 6.0 5 1.2 –5 10 7.00 5 1 –4 30 .75 –28 20 1.75 5.00 3 –48 20 .8 –18 2 0.83

7
The decimals 0.75 and 1.2 in Example 1 are terminating decimals because the decimals comes to an end. The decimal 0.333…is a repeating decimal because the decimal repeats a pattern forever. You can also write a repeating decimal with a bar over the repeating part. 0.333… = 0.3 0.8333… = 0.83 … = 0.72
